I been maintaining a Carrier 30 ton DX air handler for a few years now. Model# 40RM034-B500 HC Serial# 2399F24986. The unit is set horizontally on a steel floor stand and serves an auditoriun. The problem is that the DX evaporator coil is on a 45'angle inside the factory return air plenum and the pleated filters are always wet from condensate water dripping on them. The filter rack is also on the same angle and this seems to be a factory design error. Anyone experienced this before. Can't find the installation pdf download for this model unit on Carrier website.
Unit drains fine and I have never taken a service call for this problem because the unit is located in "The Hole Of Death" and I'm the only person that goes in there every two months or so. Blower is up to speed and delivering excellent airflow to auditorium. Ductwork was beautifully installed if I must say so myself. I have worked on smaller Carrier 40RM air handlers and they don't seem to have this problem. Any advice would be appreciated. ROC
